Isaiah Thomas wants to stay put.
Following the Cavaliers’ 140-138 win over the Timberwolves Wednesday, the veteran point guard acknowledged his sluggish start in Cleveland but said he’s hoping the team doesn’t trade him ahead of Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline.
Because Cousins won’t be on the tag, his agent can talk money with teams during the legal tampering period, which starts March 12. The new league year begins March 14. At that point, there’s a good chance Cousins will make an immediate visit to a team that likely made the best offer — or the best combination of offer and situation. A decision could come on the first night of free agency — if all goes well. Otherwise, he’d visit the next team on his list.
Kirk Cousins will be the rare high-level QB available in his prime. Jimmy Graham could be due for a change of scenery. Andrew Norwell is about to get paid. Here are the best players about to hit the open market.
It’s my job to get these guys integrated as fast as possible, James said, via ESPN.com. I know the coaching staff and (coach) T Lue Jahleel Addae Womens Jersey is going to do it, as well, but it’s my job to get these guys on the same page with us where we want to accomplish what we want to do. I look forward to getting them here. … All four of them are pretty smart guys, and it should be fun.
The Cavs acquired guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr. from the Lakers, guard Rodney Hood from the Jazz and guard George Hill from the Kings. They lost Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Dwyane Wade, Iman Shumpert and Derrick Rose.
I think we became a younger team, more athletic. We added some more shooting as well. So, we’ll have to see how it meshes, James said. I like the pieces that we have coming in.

I want Isaiah to get his bounce back, get his spring back, get healthy, James said. You know, being out seven months is difficult for anybody. I just felt like he was playing behind the 8-ball. … I wish the best for him. In L.A. right now and his future, I want him to get that bounce back, get that spring back.
